Psalm (Easter) 83

How great is the risen Lord,
~~and great is His return.

Before Abraham was, I am
~~the Anointed One,

The Glory of God,
~~the Promised One.


Psalm 70

Help me, Lord, for he who seeks a sprouting at the time of spring
~~will also seek the toil of early stirring:

help me set my first step into the vernal season of Your testament,
~~for I have put frail feet within the warming law of Your covenant.


Psalm 69

Deep within my dark and my desire, O Labyrinth of Love,
~~Hear me in my fear and lead me:
~~for You have sent me, You await me.


Psalm 68

O wonderful is the Founder of Love, Who made us,
~~and a wonder is the Master of the Mystery of Love.

He forms from love the way the potter places an embrace in clay to render a vessel as proven as a friend,
~~the way the lutenist brings bliss from silence, the way the luthier hears with his hands.

How can it be He makes us like Himself, when gleaners search the Earth for seeds of Eden,
~~and poets stack similes skyward toward an incomparable heaven?

When He makes a shape of loving purpose, it becomes heart-like,
~~and man, mainly water, rain-like, clearer than glass; in sunlight, purer than a church of stained glass.
